09/10 season video
Im not sure if this is in the right section but it seemed to fit here the best compared to the others.

This is a recap of our 09/10 season. We make a video every year so we have something to look back on when we are older. We are not the best snowboarders in the world and were not the worst. This is not what the project is about. We go to have fun and live life the way we think more people should. (outdoors with you friends) Locations include Blue Mountain Pa, Hunter Mountain, Killington, Mount Snow, Steamboat, Mountain Creek, and The Snowed Inn. The entire video was shot on a GoPro Hero HD. It was edited using final cut studio 3. I have posted this on another forum and got very mixed reviews. I have no problems with constructive criticism. I just feel that many people didnt understand what the project is about. It is a memoir for friends and family to look back on. I know that the video is on the longer side and that there is alot of lifestyle and filler shots in it. I also know that the riding isnt the spectacular. This video is made for those you have fun snowboarding for what it is. Dont get all butthurt that we arnt hucking 7s every other clip. If you are excited for the upcoming season and enjoy watching others have fun doing a sport you love than enjoy. Otherwise im sorry for disapointing you. :D

Youtube also destroyed the quality since it was 15 mins. I am going to upload it to a purchased vimeo account as well and will provide a link if people are interested in purchasing a gopro. It is still very watchable though.

footy of the east coast gets boring quick but you did a really good job of editing your footage and collecting quality B-footage. bravo

I appreciate the nice comments guys. Although I pretty much just make this for family and friends its nice to see that others can see the hard work put into it.

Very cool video. Forget what the haters say.

I'd actually like to do this myself for when my friends and I go riding on our trips. For a specific reason... my memory of our last trip is a little blurry.

I have one suggestion... and maybe this doesn't apply to you, but when I went on our 4 day trip last season (Breck, Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone)... I started to forget which photos and videos were from which resorts. So for your own memory's sake (if you are using these to look back upon sometime in the future) - I'd document when and where the videos took place. Doesn't have to be on your YouTube video... but at least on your computer so you will always know.

Simply put, this video gets me stoked. I already planned on recording some video this season for the same reason (though it will likely be pathetic in both riding and video quality compared to this), but this got me more inspired. While it's fun to watch Romain de Marchi filmed from a helicopter getting wicked air on some remote peak, your video is actually something I can relate and aspire to. I really like your camera work and post-production. The bird scene @5:47 is almost surreal and I chuckled at the air-guitar-to-faceplant @8:50. :D Nice music selection too. Thanks for sharing.

Really enjoyable. Ripping through the streets after a storm is always fun, hopefully us Jersey folk get nailed again this winter.

I have only one complaint. The vignette blur made the video seem a little dark. It was a nice effect, but maybe for this years video you could make it more subtle so the video looks brighter. Other than that, Fucking A!

This is exactly what i want to do. Have a video for memories. I am not looking to make one to show off how good or bad i am lol. I am looking into gettin the HD gopro.. I really like the quality (even after youtube kills it) thanks man. Great vid!
